The Place of Poetry in Academia: Pedagogical Practices in the Teaching of Creative Writing
An exploration of the issues surrounding the teaching of creative writing, particularly poetry writing, at the university level. Given the ever increasing number of BA (and postgraduate) degree courses in creative writing being offered by UK universities, this topic is both timely and of wide interest. This panel discussion, which will include audience participation in the form of questions for the presenters and responses to their remarks, will result in the production of a paper summarising its contents (in the form of an edited transcript).
